Beautiful Swimmers

Published May 1, 2009 by Graham

This clip for Beautiful Swimmers’ single “O Yea,” uses found footage from an 80s workout tape and then processes it through a seemingly simple ghosting effect that hearkens back to some of the earliest experiments in video art. In concept, it all seems pretty par for the course– and yet the end result is more than the sum of its parts. Thanks to some skillful editing by Aurora Halal and Ashiq Khondker, the video exudes a glittering and glitchy charm that matches the song perfectly.
